The Masciale's
  "Have you seen La La Land?! I think you need to see it!" This was a text from Krysta before she asked if we can  create a family shoot inspired by the movie. I pretty much booked tickets the next day. This series of images is from the third time I've photographed this family. After each delivery of photos I get a text message from this incredibly strong no-n[...]

Haze + Nick
By now, you're probably aware of my fascination with urban portraiture. While I've lived in LA for 2 years already, I keep finding myself gravitating to places in LA that remind me of NYC. It's my happy place. Haze and Nick were visiting from Honk Kong so we spent half a day exploring various parts of LA that had an urban industrial feel. Which, on a side note, after [...]

  "Can't you see I'm no good without you..." Those words alone are enough to evoke a deep, consuming, unabashed love. "How can I go on dear without you?"

I thoug[...]

From a practical angle, I like to find their good side, talk about what they want from their photographer, set any expectations. I want to show up at their wedding as an old fr[...]

Elegant is the word I would use to describe this Florentine Gardens wedding. Coming in from LA, it was refreshing to experience an outdoor ceremony during a beautifully crisp Autumn day out on the East Coast. One of the elements that stood out to me was their unique take on showcasing their new union. With two little watering pots in hand they watered the little plant[...]

One of my new favorite things to document is that pre-motherhood phase. Maybe its the radiant glow on a woman's face or the anticipation on starting a brand new chapter in life. Either way it's a beautiful season thats gone all too quickly and worthy of documentation. This new mama was torn between wanting images that were soft, feminine and intimate or Urban and f[...]
